The portrait of a free spirit.

His name was “Karma” which means "the duty of life" and it was justified to his character. We met him during the time of our jungle trek in West Sikkim. He was a porter with full of life and laughter. In this photograph I wanted to capture his uninhibited personality, free spirit. Which actually just turned into a magical moment due to the presence of Bob Marley in his woolen cap. It seems that these two characters are perfectly tuned with each other somewhere.
